Four days more would enable the traveller to include Baden and Strasburg.

A person who secures his place beforehand in the mallepost at Calais to Paris, and at Paris to Strasburg, and who travels with a ForeignOffice Passport, so as to avoid the two days' delay at Paris, occasioned by the necessity of exchanging his passe-provisoire, might reach Štragburg in five days from London.

As is observed in the body of the work, the voyage from Strasburg to London down the Rhine is performed by Steam-boats in Five Days.

This route, as here laid down, would give a traveller the opportunity of seeing several most interesting cities and much fine scenery--though of course they could not be explored thoroughly in such a flying visit. A great many of our countrymen, having no fixed plan to travel by, seem only to calculate how far from home they can go in a limited time, and are contented with what they can see from the deck of the steamer and the window of the diligence. They would be much more gratified were they to portion out their time somewhat in the manner indicated above.
